Rich malt nose with traces of skunk that dissipates upon swirling the glass.
Pours brilliant copper amber under a 1' white foam cap that provides rich lace.
Provides a very creamy palate with spice, nuts and some biscuit.
Medium to medium low carbonation, medium body.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly crystal clear golden copper color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, toast, biscuit, light caramel, floral, grass, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with well balanced citrus hop and bready malt notes; with decent strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, toast, biscuit, light caramel, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon/orange zest, toast, biscuit, light caramel, and floral/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of citrus hops and bready malt flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice amber ale. All around good balance and robustness of citrus hops and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

A nice clear copper colored brew, this one has a thin off-white head. Good appearance. The aroma is clean,a lightly malty, and with a hint of undetermined fruit. Decent hop presence. Fresh and clean taste. Firmly bitter. This is a tasty, but not exceptional outdoor brew (enjoyed on my deck on Memorial Day).
